  • Griddle or skillet
  • pastry brush
  • measuring cups
  • Liquid measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • mixing bowls
  • Spatula turner
  • mixing spoon
  • ice cream scoop
  • whisk



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

  • Fill a ¼ cup measuring cup or large ice cream scoop with batter and pour onto a hot griddle or skillet.
  • Add several slices of banana to the top of each pancake.
  • Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the edges are set and underneath is golden brown.

  • Repeat with any remaining batter. Oil the skillet or griddle as needed.


  • Serve immediately with additional banana slices, coconut syrup, and chopped macadamia nuts.
